When you're as hollow as Enoch Kane, the emptiness aches. He's desperate to fill it, but he doesn't have the patience or the commitment to fill it with anything worthwhile… So a man like Kane obsesses on one thing after another sex, money, food, power, drugs, alcohol anything that seems to give meaning to his days, but that requires no real self-discovery or self-sacrifice.
A million years ago there had been no river here and in a million years to come there might be no river but in a million years from now there would be, if not Man, at least a caring thing. And that was the secret of the universe, Enoch told himself a thing that went on caring.clifford d. simak
[According to] Genesis 6:1-6, there the 'children of God' have intercourse with women, producing a race of Nephilim , 'mighty men that were old, men of renown'. Enoch 6-11 describes how these heavenly beings (all named) teach the women about spells, root-cutting and plants, astrology, weapons of war, and cosmetics. The women give birth to giants, who turn to cannibalism and drinking blood. The earth cries out for help, and God orders the execution of the giants, the binding of the Watchers beneath the hill until the day of judgment, and thereafter in a fiery chasm.John William Rogerson, on The Old Testament World. p.204
